Maternity photo shoots are the latest trend nowadays.However, this woman has given the concept a totally different meaning.
Sara Whelan Curtis is a Ph.D. researcher at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Now prestigious as it may be, getting a doctorate may just be the hardest thing you’ve ever done and this young student had the perfect analogy to express how she felt on finally getting the degree.
She contrasted it with pregnancy and considered it the longest work ever. She shared a before and after a picture of herself with her ‘infant’ also.
According to news18:
In one picture, she can be seen caressing her ‘baby bump’, and in the next picture, she is seen cradling her thesis wrapped in baby blankets. How cute is that?
This is probably the funniest thing we’ve seen today and Twitter seems to agree. In fact, many female scholars also shared their ‘labor’ stories in the comment thread!
And the twitter went crazy
This is EVERYTHING!!!!!
This was my hand in photo. As I couldn’t bear the smiley normal photo as if I just casually wrote 130,000 words. No I was goddam showing the pain and torture too. Dragging myself to the finish line! pic.twitter.com/lh8lWtkANM
